Morly Announces Debut Album ‘‘Til I Start Speaking’, Unveils New Single ‘Dance to You’

    Following a series of EPs, Morly – the project of singer-songwriter Katy Morley – has announced her debut album: ‘Til I Start Speaking is out August 20 via Cascine. It’s led by the new single ‘Dance to You’, which arrives with an accompanying video directed by Lawrence Pumfrey and choreographed by Katya Bourviski. Check it out below and scroll down for the LP’s cover artwork and tracklist.

    “‘Dance to You’ is about the need for — and is the vehicle for — a benevolent exorcism,” Morley said in a statement. “It sprang from an encounter with someone so radiant to me that they helped light my way, but that I had to outgrow in order to see my own brilliance: I can’t grow/inside your glow.”

    Of the video, she added: “The video explores the sort of dream state and rush of inspiring infatuation, but also its malleability and destabilizing effect. The fight to emerge lucidly as yourself, but without cauterizing the past. To save and integrate what you found so inspiring in the first place. Katya and I talked about my experiences as a young artist finding my feet in a difficult industry, especially with flagging health, and the constant pressure to define and sell yourself which helped to inform the structure of the piece. It’s also partially inspired by Pina Bausch’s dance, Kontakthof.”
